[PATCH] RPM spec file with systemd integration

Good question. My intention is not to make BIRD dependent on a specific 
init system, but to offer a choice. That is why my patch does not 
overwrite the existing bird.spec file, but instead provides a new 
bird-systemd.spec file as an alternative. I understand that systemd is 
controversial, and I do not agree with the model of "nuke sysv init and 
pave with systemd". I do, however, support choice.
